Subject: Re: What about teaching factoring: ax^3+ bx^2 y + cxy^2 + dy^3

Have you tried , the student edition of MATHEMATICA from Wolfram Research (http://www.wolfram.com/) . This is a stand-alone software, which you can purchase from them. This is the best breed of Computer Algebra Systems. Commands are easy to learn, such as: factor('ax^3+ bx^2 y + cxy^2 + dy^3'), and middle steps are shown up to the answer. The other one that rival MATHEMATICA is called MAPLE from MapleSoft (Canada). They are both excellent. I hope it helps. Cheers, Sione.
